White Walls and Shooting Gallery’s Grand Opening in San Francisco’s Tenderloin District
Last weekend marked the official grand opening of the new home to San Francisco gallery staples White Walls and Shooting Gallery. I was able to get a first look at the new space located at 866 Geary Street and catch up with artist Chad Hasegawa and curator Justin Giarla at the grand opening press preview on Friday, February 8th. The gallery is in a 5,000 square foot building that underwent a complete renovation over the last several months. The show opened with young, emerging San Francisco based artists Chad Hasegawa, who’s know for his large scale murals found all over the streets of San Francisco, and artist Charmaine Olivia. Work by two renowned London street artists, Word to Mother and Sickboy, can also be seen in the galleries project spaces dedicated to non-traditional exhibitions.
